Iowa's starting pitcher Randy Wells (3-0) took the win. He pitched six innings, giving up 7 hits, 3 runs (all earned), walked two, and struck-out 7.

The evening started well for the Sounds, scoring one run in each of the first three innings, while giving up just one.  At the top of the 4th it was 3-1 Sounds. There seemed to be a rhythm to the offense, including a Gamel (7) solo home run in the 1st.

Iowa came right back in the top of the 4th to score 2 runs to tie it up. Bobby Scales singled to left and Doug Deeds followed with a 2-run home run to left. 3-3 tie.

In the 6th inning Cub’s slugger Jake Fox hit a towering solo-shot to the right field picnic area, the ball careening back on to the field as if to taunt the Sounds. That home run proved to be the game-winning run. It was Jake’s second homer of the evening, hitting another one-out solo blast in the 2nd inning to left field. He leads the league with 11 homers.

Going into the top of the 8th the Sounds trailed just 4-3. With one run-out Doug Deeds singled a line-drive to CF. Slugger Jake Fox walked. With Brad Snyder batting, the Cubs pulled a double steal successfully, leaving 1B open. Instead of walking Snyder to load the bases and set-up the double-play, manager Don Money kept pitching to Snyder who had a hot bat already; singling in the 2nd and 4th. Nashville paid the ultimate price for pitching to Brad. Snyder hit a towering 3-run home run (5) to right field off Chris Narveson.

The game was now well out of reach as Nashville is 3-6 when allowing the opposition to score three or more runs in one inning. The Sounds did not threaten the rest of the game and the final score was 7-3.

Iowa’s starting pitcher Randy Wells (3-0) took the win. He pitched six innings, giving up 7 hits, 3 runs (all earned), walked two, and struck-out 7.

Starting pitcher Nick Green (1-2) took the loss Monday against the Cubs. He pitched six innings; giving up 8 hits, 4 runs (all earned), no walks, struck out 5.  He yielded 3 home runs.

The Sounds slide to 10-9 for the year and Iowa goes to 13-6. The Sounds have lost a real opportunity to gain on the division-leading Cubs, losing 2 of the first 3 games against Iowa at Greer. They play their 4th game in the series tomorrow (4.28).
